The Republic of Agathosma is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, otherworldly petting zoo, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, devout population of 5.2 billion Agathosmen are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.

The powerhouse Agathosman economy, worth 431 trillion 9003s a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,007 9003s, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, several inches are being added to first class seating, loading sixteen tons of laundry gets you another year older and deeper in debt, and public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agathosma's national animal is the 9003, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Agathosma is ranked 121,376th in the world and 1st in accelerators for Most Avoided, scoring 2.31 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
